About Pam & Charlie Nott

When choosing our own holidays, we always knew we would go to France, the decision was which region? When we decided to make a lifestyle change France was the only place for us. We moved to La Roche Chabrelle in 2002 with our family and have run our 4 gîtes here ever since. Our aim has been to provide relaxing holidays for both families and couples in a beautiful quiet location. With simply furnished but well equipped gîtes, we take pride in seeing our guests unwind while staying with us.

Pam & Charlie Nott purchased this barn in 2002

Why Pam & Charlie Nott chose Saint-Just

The Perigord Vert region is an area of gently rolling hills separated by winding river valleys, between the woods there are fields of sunflowers and wheat and walnut trees for the walnut oil milled locally. It is very rural and unspoilt with lots of space and few people. Being so undeveloped means this is a region full of wildlife and the local deer are a frequent sight in the early morning or at dusk.

La Roche Chabrelle is situated in a small hamlet of just 4 houses and being on top of a hill has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. There are plenty of walks and cycle rides on our doorstep, canoeing on the nearby river Dronne and many cafes bars and restaurants just a short drive away. Brantôme, our nearest town is known as the Venice of the Dordogne and has an excellent market.

What makes this barn unique

This is a paradise for children who love having the freedom of 5 acres to play in. We have swings, a badminton net, a small football pitch and a cricket rebound net and a games cave with table tennis and table football. We also have a troglodyte cave on site which was inhabited during medieval times. Whatever the season there are plenty of wildflowers, birds and other wildlife to see and we try to encourage them with suitable habitats such as leaving some areas of grass uncut. The children are always fascinated by the insects and lizards. At nights the stars are a wonderful sight with no light pollution and spotting the shooting stars is a popular evening pastime.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first summer holiday together in France and we were so lucky to have found your gîte to stay in. What a wonderful surrounding and fantastic views. We couldn't have asked for anything more. What a lovely surprise to arrive to a welcome pack with all the essentials included. Thanks for all your help, including providing recommendations for a vet which was really appreciated. Wishing Pam Charlie and their sons all the best for the future and we will be sure to recommend you wherever we go.

Well equipped and beautiful gite

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful gite with beamed ceilings, thick stone walls and south facing terrace. We loved canoeing on the local river and cooling off in the pool. The setting was picturesque and incredibly peaceful. Clean and well equipped. Pam and Charlie were great hosts and really helpful when we needed it. We'd love to return one day.

The View from Hibou at La Roche Chabrelle

  • 5 of 5

La Roche Chabrelle is in a terrific location. It is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and lots of sights to see. We were there until July 16th. We were in Hibou and had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The pool is large with lots of room to play and relax. Charlie & Pam accomodated all of our requests for WIFI, TV and a table with chairs in the second bedroom for our computers. The gardens are beautiful and we had access to the herb garden for cooking. There was a barbeque and all the tools and items to make great meals. The kitchen is very well outfitted. Pam found out I was making a stock and immediately brought me a stock pot. Charlie helped us every time we had a question and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us. It is a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere allowing us private space without intrusion. Our granddaughter came to visit and they opened the pool for us even though it was still quite cool. Visit Brantome, Bordeilles, Bergerac, Bordeaux, Perigueux the Caves, the list goes on. There is so much to do and see and then you could just relax by the pool instead.

Lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well equipped, quiet, lots for the kids to do (table tennis, swimming, table Football, football, badminton, swings) without spoiling the remote/get away from it all type feeling. Need a car for definite but would highly recommend this if you are looking for a peaceful break with the necessities of home. We didnt switch the TV on once but the washing machine came in handy (with 3 kids). Nice touches like welcome pack (beer, wine, cheese) and friendly helpful owners who didn't intrude or impose. No negatives to report, absolutely what we wanted.

Total Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

This is such a peaceful and relaxing place. It’s in a beautiful area and is a good base for site seeing around the local area but also is also accessible for day trips a little bit further away. The facilities are great and it’s a very safe and secure family friendly place to holiday. We had a great Trip.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Strongly recommend this accommodation, everything about it was perfection. It is set in an area which enables you to travel to surrounding villages/towns with ease. On site there is a stunning pool, a badminton court, football pitch, a cave with table football and table tennis also swings, so plenty to keep the children amused, also felt very secure and safe. Owners Pam and Charlie were very friendly and there if needed, loved every minute of our stay here, didn't want it to end, definitely considering going back very soon.

South of the Cricket Line

Driving south from Limoges in Limousin, the landscape and architecture suddenly begin to take on a more southerly look. Instead of grey slate, the roofs become terracotta tiles with quaint sloping angles. Instead of grey granite, the walls become honey coloured limestone or rusty red sandstone. Cooler, greyer northern France is left behind and you enter Aquitaine and Dordogne, where in summer the crickets sing from dawn till dusk, followed by the nightingales. You have crossed the invisible line into southern France!

You will not want to travel much further if you have driven from a channel port that day. So what have we here in northern Dordogne bordering on Corrèze and Haute-Vienne? This is the borderland between France and Aquitaine, scene of so many battles during the hundred years’ war, a land of stunning fortress chateaux, built mostly to keep out the English - or the French, depending on which side of the border they happened to be. Some towns were repeatedly sacked, pillaged and burnt by the opposing armies. One castle, Excideuil, withstood two sieges by the English king, but the town around it was burnt to a cinder. In Excideuil also was born the first troubadour, Bertrand de Born. Perhaps the whole idea of chivalry came from this little area in Périgord. Enough of history – what about the weather?

Long hot summers last from May until September. Just enough rain keeps the landscape deliciously fresh and green. It is, after all, called the Périgord Vert, and even when there is a dry summer it does not turn the landscape brown or glaring white (as it can so often be only a short way south). Winters here are delightful, with frosty dry weather, sunny days and very little snow. When it rains it is usually very wet, but mild. Spring and autumn are distinct seasons, reliably unreliable. The colourful local farmers’ markets keep pace with the seasons so you know where you are in the year. Temperatures are a noticeable degree or two higher than in Limousin, but only rarely reach the dizzy heights so frequent in the Midi and Mediterranean regions.

This is the undiscovered corner of Aquitaine, quiet, unspoilt and rural. Fewer Britons have bought here than have been descending on the fashionable river Dordogne area. Being an hour away from the tourist hot spots means uncluttered roads throughout the summer and easy access at all times of the year.

One huge advantage is the easy access to Limoges, Bordeaux, Brive and Bergerac airports flying direct to many UK cities. The new A89 motorway provides good links to Bordeaux and the coast to the west, and to the ski slopes of the Massif Central to the east. The A20 links the area to Paris and the north, and to Toulouse and the far south.

This is what makes La Roche Chabrelle a superb destination for your holiday whether you are a family or just a couple.
